Connecting Crouch End and Hornsey with news, views and information

A sub-depot housing the street cleansing barrows belonging to waste contractor Veolia will be moved from Stationers Park in Hornsey after discussions with the Friends of the Park.
Following a series of meetings between Veolia and Friends of the Park, the council agreed this week to move the depot in a way which should not affect the street cleansing operations.
Cllr Nilgun Canver, Cabinet Member for the Environment, said:
We have listened to the concerns of the Friends of the Park and have decided to move the sub-depot.
The Friends wanted changes to the depot fence which we feel would have compromised health and safety. Also, I took account of the fact that in this small park the introduction of the new depot has had a disproportionate impact on the park, unlike the purpose built depots in other, larger parks.
Taking all these factors into account I informed Veolia that given the situation I think it not unreasonable that we move the depot. We listen and learn and I thank the Friends for working with us in good faith to find a solution.
The depot will be dismantled shortly and the area brought back to its original state within a couple of months.
